This is a blog post I NEVER thought I would be writing but hear goes ........ I have a grumble about my Alopecia and the problem is re growth!
Having spent the last 18 years getting used to my Alopecia I have embraced the positive aspects of the condition. For example ....
1) no more leg shaving. Yey :)
2) no under arm hair :D my friends have always been extremely envious of this!
3) super smooth skin (due to the lack of hairs)
4) the fact that I don't have to wax or tweeze annoying hairs from my face!
The above "positives" of Alopecia I have grown to become pretty proud of. So you can imagine my shock horror when I discovered a few months ago that I had started to grow hairs under my armpits! But it hasn't stopped there .... I'm also now the proud owner of almost a full set of eyebrows (it's a tad unfortunate that they have decided to grow BELOW my perfectly defined set of Spmu eyebrows ) , almost a full set of white eyelashes (their short, spiky and annoy me .. they tickle!) and BLACK hairs on my *whispers in a low, embarrassed tone* big toes!!! I don't mean to come across as ungrateful or anything but really ???? Not a hair on my head yet I get hair growth in places where I would,as a woman, really prefer not to have any hair at all!
The underarm hair has lead me along to my very first waxing appointment at the age of thirty. I don't recommend it. It bloody hurts!! I've taken to having to shave my big hairy toes (sexy huh?) at least once a fortnight and I have to regularly endure the absolute TORTURE that is eyebrow tweezing or threading which again is so painful I literally find myself crying my eyes out and squeeling like a crazy woman while my friend almost falls on the floor laughing at me.
What I want to know is ..... Why on earth are the hair follicles in unwanted areas starting to spring into action whilst I'm still left with a head as smooth as a babies bottom!? Random, bizarre, annoying and painful to remove :-/
Well that's my grumble for the day .....l never in a million years would I have thought I would grumble about re growth but there you go!
Enjoy the rest if the week everyone :)
